GUELPH, CANADA: Canadian Solar Inc.has executed a sales contract to supply photovoltaic (PV) modules to two utility scale projects totaling 146.4 MWp in Honduras.
These two projects, entitled Project Developer/EPC Solar Power S.A. de C.V. (SOPOSA) and Companía Hondurena de Energia Solar S.A. de C.V. (COHESSA), will be constructed in the southern region of Honduras between December 2014 and March 2015. Each project powers approximately 73.2 MWp, bringing the total to 146.4 MWp.
This is equivalent to supplying energy needs to 45,000 homes in Honduras with cost-effective and renewable green energy. These two projects represent a milestone for SOPOSA and COHESSA, whose corporate vision strives to develop solar projects that maintain the highest standards of sustainable development.
"We are pleased to be selected to supply our PV modules to SOPOSA and COHESSA, both world leading developers and EPC providers. I am confident that Canadian Solar's global experience, proven track record, and consistent product performance will continue to make us a partner of choice in supplying our modules to key solar installations worldwide," said Dr. Shawn Qu, chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar.
Since 2010, Canadian Solar's PV modules have consistently been ranked at the top of the PVUSA Test Conditions (PTC) Ratings, maintaining their leadership position in the market. Furthermore, for the fourth year in a row, Canadian Solar has achieved first-rate results on the Potential Induced Degradation (PID) test results. This test assesses how well modules withstand extreme environmental conditions in a test laboratory.
